We drove to Hurrican Ridge today and had a ball. :-) Hurricane Ridge is a mountainous area in Washington's Olympic National Park. Approximately 18 miles by road from Port Angeles, the ridge is open to hiking, skiing, and snowboarding and is one of the two most visited sites in the national park.

At an elevation of 5,242 feet (1,598 m), Hurricane Ridge is a year-round destination. In summer, visitors come for views of the Olympic Mountains, as well as for hiking. During the winter months the small, family oriented Hurricane Ridge Ski and Snowboard Area offers lift-serviced downhill skiing and snowboarding. We had a great time with snowball fights making snowmen and just enjoying our time in the park. I will let the pictures tell the rest of the story. Check back later for more from Washington.
